Rishi set to increase the salary threshold for foreign workers

Following pressure from his own Tory cabinet Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has announced a new controversial policy. The new measures, as announced by Home Secretary James Cleverly state that the new salary threshold for foreign workers will be increased from £26,200 to £38,700 there will also be a ban on overseas social care staff bringing loved ones to the UK.

These changes come after polls displayed a decrease in Sunak's favor within his party. To remedy this drop in popularity Sunak and his counterparts publicised the new right-wing policy in hopes to unite the now divided conservative party. Home secretary Cleverly unveiled a five-point plan. Summarising the arrangement Cleverly said “The first of our five points will be to end the abuse of the health and care visa. We will stop overseas care workers from bringing family dependants and we will require care firms in England to be regulated” The plan is said to reduce migration by 300,000. Cleverly also spoke on the previously announced ban on international students from leaving school to pursue work stating, “We have also stopped international students from switching out of the student route into work routes before their studies have been completed. These changes will have a tangible impact on net migration.”

This focus particularly on international students comes from the visas that were granted to dependants of the students. 153,000 visas were granted in the year ending September 2023. Referencing this Cleverly noted, “I can announce that we will go even further than those provisions already in place, with a five-point plan to further curb immigration abuses that will deliver the biggest ever reduction in net migration.”

After numbers presented that 1.2 million people entered Britain last year alone. Sunak felt the pressure from his party to deliver a plan that would tackle the migration issue. Today his Home Secretary Cleverly told MPs that the five-point plan would amount to the largest reduction in immigration on record. Addressing the crowd Cleverly said “Enough is enough. Immigration policy must be fair, legal, and sustainable,”

This comes ahead of strategies for a modified treaty with Rwanda to guarantee deportation flights after the policy was declared unlawful by the Supreme Court.
